I think it's fun to test the limit with some of the bamboo to see how they handle cold stress. I notice my young seedlings were fragile at first to frost up in 7b but they have hardened off now to where the weather does not affect them.

... inland even though that cold lasted a matter of minutes before the temp rebounded above -17c. So that would make P.aureosulcatat a Z7a or better 7b for above ground parts. Do you routinely loose above ground parts of all P. spp. when temps drop down there however briefly? That would mean a huge ...

This is zone 7b in the DC area, but recently most winters haven't dipped below 15F so it may change to 8a if the warming trend continues. The Nigra is getting shaded out by a few groves on the south side so it may not be performing ...

... has been there for about 20 years now. I have about 15 in the ground here. Sabals MUST have full sun and shelter from winter winds north of zone 7b. The key for sabals is summer heat and moisture. I mix crushed shells into the soil when planting, this is what the giant coastal NC and variety ...

... more like rubro? Phy. atrovaginata grows faster and is more vigorous here than red margin is. Atro and vivax are two of my fastest growers in zone 7b/8a. They are the most common boos to run rhizomes out of pots here when sunk in the ground. As I describe on my website, my sources in Europe described ...

I live in zone 7b and my Phy. nigras did not defoliate at all down to 10 deg. F. here, and neither did my Hib. t. Shiroshimas. I have Bory, Henon, Megurochiku, Daikokuchiku, (giant black), standard nigra, and Punctada (banana peel). ...

... Florida, the longer rhizomes can grow due to the length of the growing season. Therefore if yellowgroove can shoot 20ft+ rhizomes here in zone 7b in South Carolina, rhizomes in florida should be able to grow even longer, perhaps :shock: If I'm right at all about their growing habits, anyway? ...
